Gibson’s Hummingbird Studio brings you the same vintage construction as it did when the first Hummingbird flew off the line. Enjoy a rich, varied tone, thanks to this square-shoulder acoustic guitar’s solid Sitka spruce top, walnut back and sides, and mahogany neck. Beyond that, the solid midrange and treble tones that made this guitar famous are also supported by an ever-present lower tone that comes from expert design and materials. No matter what tonal shade you’re aiming for, this Hummingbird covers it. And you can take that legendary tone to the stage, courtesy of Fishman Sonitone electronics.
A classic neck for great playability
Upon its landing in 1960, the Gibson Hummingbird made a lasting impression for its neck design and overall playability. With the Hummingbird Studio, you get that same classic neck with a few updates. This mahogany neck features an Advanced Response profile for amazing comfort and playability. A walnut fretboard further enhances the feel and response of a killer neck and fretboard pairing. And like all Gibson guitars, the Hummingbird Studio receives a Plek treatment before leaving Gibson’s factory. The Plek process uses computer-controlled measurements to individually dress and crown the frets, eliminating string buzz and delivering perfect playability right out of the case.
Exquisite tonewoods and gorgeous design
Once you play a Hummingbird and hear it sing, you’ll understand why this guitar has earned the iconic status it holds. Many players of the Hummingbird maintain that its tonal signature is truly one of a kind. Covering low, midrange, and treble in nearly equal parts, the Hummingbird Studio is a popular choice among a variety of players across genres. It sounds great strummed wide open with a pick or gently plucked with the fingers, making it a solid choice for country, bluegrass, folk, or rock ‘n’ roll. And no one can ignore the visual impact of the Hummingbird with its classic hummingbird pickguard, the same design as when it first appeared in 1960.
Fishman Sonitone electronics for premium plugged-in tones
